God is Great but Church is Awful! Part One

Yup!

Been there, done that!

God is Real

He’s awesome

Jesus is Lord but

The church is just awful.

Have you ever felt that way?

You want to serve God and you believe you should go to church.  But every week on what may be your only day off during the week church is like being in the middle of a soap opera or a really bad TV reality show.

It’s no wonder many people just stay  home and watch Christian TV or listen to Christian radio.  Perhaps that’s why so many false prophets do so well on TV.  Despite having obvious flaws people support them because it’s all they have to keep them going.

On the other hand it could explain why so many others are turning to internet services and cyber-churches.  It’s a happy compromise.

There were many years where it was bad enough that I felt like a reject and a loser in the social and professional world but I also felt rejected in church.  That was the pits.

Somehow I knew I had to keep trying.  Deep down I understood how the church worked in the bible and that it was God’s plan to reach humanity.

Through the next series of posts I’d like to share my story.

It’s all about that awful 4 letter word T-I-M-E.

So what you?

Have you got a bad church story you’d like to share?

Chances are we’ve all been there done, hope it gets better.

What I Am and What I Do

For the past 25 years or so I’ve worked in either a warehouse or in building services.  Not exactly what you’d call a professional.

But hey!  It pays the bills and between my wife and I we’ve done OK for us an’ the two kids.

But it’s all good.  For many of us if not most us who we really are is not defined by what we do for a living.

My job is in a warehouse but it’s not who I am or what I “Do.”

I’m a husband to my wife and a dad to my two kids.  What I really do is my ministry at my church.

I help teach kids about the love of Jesus and the truth of God in His Word The Holy Bible.  That’s what I “do.”

Nuff said.
